My self-summary
I'm a gentleman, I always put the cap back on the toothpaste, and put the seat back down. Other than the typical stuff, music is the most important thing to me. No, I don't play in a band. Improvised jams are the best thing in the world; I love the idea of creating something with other people that starts with one note, and sometimes turns into something amazing.

I'm from Portland, Maine, and Moved to Florida when I was 10. I have been living in Chicago for a little over 3 1/2 yrs. Now and couldn't be happier.
What I’m doing with my life
During the day I bar tend and wait tables, and at night I'm a live sound engineer. I love doing sound for bands and I'm working on making it a fulltime gig.
I’m really good at
Faking it, so it sounds like I know what I'm doing on the piano. I'm an O.K musician, not the best, but not the worst. I spend a lot of my free time trying to get better and better.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
If a monkey with a knife could beat up a lion. Not really, but I think this is a silly question. It changes too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, making music, or having a drink with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing is that private, just ask.
You should message me if
We have common interest. Also, I can't see "likes", just send a message!
